I'm sure we've all created a handprint similiar to the one above at some point in our lives. Our parents treasured it as though it was a masterpiece. Because for most of us it was our very first work of art. Well with that being said, the moment God touches your life he lives an imprint forever etched on your soul. It's as though you become his work of art. No matter how far you drift away it seems once his mighty hand reaches the depths of your soul, no doubt about it, you're branded for life.
The word of God distinctly says that if you train up a child in the way he should go when he is old he will not depart from it. I can't tell you how much God's stamp on my life at an early age has impacted me personally. It seems so many of us today are looking for the world's stamp of approval. But we are actually warned against it. God prefers that we be in this world but not of it. He wants us to stand out, to be different among them.
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."
When God takes delight in us it's such a blessing. For crying out loud he is God! He created the Heaven's & the Earth. So the fact that he wants a personal one on one relationship with each of us simply blows my mind.
He loves us so much that he created us in his likeness & image. We are truly a reflection of who he is & an extension of his mad, crazy, love! I am honored & humbled all at the same time because I know that his imprint on my life makes me unique & special.
"So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."
It is my prayer that each of you get to experience God's presence in your life. That you get to feel his mighty hands wrapped around you, surrounding you with his love. Let me tell you, it's absolutely amazing! He's been the one constant in my life, guiding & directing me all throughout. I hope that your life too will be forever changed by the imprint he leaves on your soul.
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
